Correcting a SnapMirror initialization failure

A SnapMirror initialization can fail with the error message Volume volume_name is restricted if a previous initialization attempt failed. The initialization fails because the destination volume was restricted in the first failed attempt.

About this task

You correct a SnapMirror initialization failure by changing the state of the destination volume from restricted to online and then running another initialization attempt.


  1. Change the state of the destination volume by using the volume modify command with the -state parameter.
    vs2::> volume modify -vserver -volume vol3_dst 
           -state online
  2. Initialize the SnapMirror relationship by using the snapmirror initialize command.
    vs2::> snapmirror initialize -destination-path
